This volume reviews recent findings on protein metabolism during infancy and presents authoritative recommendations on optimal protein intake for infants. Close attention is given to the protein requirements of low-birthweight, very-low-birthweight, and small-for-gestational-age infants and to the essential amino acid requirements of infants with inborn errors of metabolism. The protein needs of healthy full-term infants, both during the first four months and during weaning, are also examined. Other chapters focus on the quality of protein in human milk and in formulas; the digestibility and absorption of protein in infants; the role of essential and nonessential amino acids in neonatal nutrition; the significance of nucleic: acids, nucleotides, and related compounds; and the role of tumour necrosis factor in protein metabolism.
